Hello everyone!

I have been following many threads for quite sometime, but this is my very first thread.

Introduction:
My name is David and I am a graduate student at SJSU. An enjoyable and rewarding hobby of mine is mobile audio.

Vehicle:
2003 Infiniti G35 coupe
Stock alternator (110 amp), big 3 upgrade, soon Diehard platinum battery

Equipment:
Source: Clarion DRZ 9255
Amps: (suggestions welcomed)
Speakers: Stevens Audio ultra drivers on full body horns (8 ohm), ID cx62 1st gen. (2 ohm), pair ID8s (dual 2 ohm)

I am not looking for old school amps (although great). I have bought and sold car audio equipment too many times and for one I would like to finish an install and enjoy it!:laugh: I can honestly say that my car although drivable, has spent more days out of the year torn apart and without tunes.

Requirements:
1. Total cost < $550
2. Outstanding SQ, low noise floor, good control, dynamic, etc…
3. Efficient, my electrical system should not limit its capability. (I do have a RF 10 farad hybrid capacitor if it helps.)
4. Mountable on 11” X 29” surface area (no stacking)
5. Bass knob for subs (not a deal breaker)
6. Good enough for horns

Possible amps: (in no particular order)
1. Arc Audio KAR KS/mini (class g/h how is sq?)
2. New Soundstream Reference (get hot and turn off?)
3. Audio system twister (not much info, availability)

Given the equipment and requirements I have set what are your thoughts, opinions or suggestions on amplifiers?

How about the aura rpm stage 2 amps?
Possibly (3) 2300 at that price.
Concerns: current draw and good enough for horns?

i think the Leviathan III should be a good choice if it fits the size requirement.

Wow! Do they really make rated power?
Rated power is 190 watts x 6 into 4 ohm or 300w x 6 into 2 ohm.

Thanks guys for all your suggestions! I currently have in route an Audio System trio. :)
All series III
F4-380
F2-300
F2-190

Now I have many configuration options to choose from...
